The Federal Cabinet on Tuesday granted approval on filing treason case under Article 6 of the constitution against Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) leader Mufti Kifayatullah over his anti-state remarks.
According to the details, Prime Minister Imran Khan chaired the federal cabinet meeting today in Islamabad. The meeting discussed overall economic and political situation of the country.
During the meeting Cabinet granted approval on filing treason case under Article 6 of the constitution against (JUI-F) leader Mufti Kifayatullah over his anti-state remarks.
It may be noted that JUI (F) Leader Mufti Kifayatullah was arrested in October 2019 ahead of an Azadi March in Islamabad by Maulana Fazlur Rehman by the capital’s police for issuing provocative remarks against national institutions.
Mufti Kifayatullah was taken into custody from Islamabad’s Sector E-11 under clause 3 of the maintenance of public order (MPO) ordinance, which was later challenged in the Abbottabad high court by his lawyers on October 29.
On November 01, he was released from jail after the Abbottabad bench of the Peshawar High Court (PHC) granted bail to him.
